You could say this is part of my Wavy Wood Series, Just a simple Dvd rack.

I made this out of recycled crate stock and some old glass from an Entertainment center that I put to the curb.

Dooley,

Looks great. What keeps the glass attached to the uprights? Looks like on little tap and upright would fall off?

Hi Dooley,

This is an interesting piece. I am baffled by the glass as well.

Thanks for sharing.

This is a great illustration of the “less is more” line of thinking.

Hey guys,

Well there is a bit of epoxy in the dado’s, also if you look close, I broke a couple of razor blades in half, and pounded them in the dado to form a nice compression fit. Thats’ it! I know it looks precarious, but really its pretty sturdy, I have it loaded completely to the teeth with videos and games.

Looks very nice and you have captured that floating feel – curious to the “feet” size and stock?
How tall is the piece?
A really nice modern design.

Maybe epoxy? Also wondering. Great idea though. Is that tempered glass?

Less is more is right! This looks very elegant and way too save stuff from the landfill.
